It’s that time of year again, when the time gets away from us! As a result, I tend to over-spend every year around the holidays when I am without some guidance. Therefore, it is important more than ever before, to carefully consider what you will be gifting your loved ones withthis year. Gift them something they will equally love and benefit from this year! I am thrilled to provide you with this Holiday Gift Guide for the Conscious Consumer. Be sure to watch for the Black Friday-Cyber Monday deals included here, too!

What is a Conscious Consumer?
A Conscious Consumer cares not only about what is being purchased, but also how and where it came from. Someone who is a Conscious Consumer typically considers purchases based on a number of factors:
- how something is sourced
- sustainability and authenticity of sources
- organic and/or non-gmo
- global impact
- charitable percentages given from purchases
- quality of product
- environmental effects
- health effects
- locally sourced
Some people carefully consider the above qualifications when making purchases. Think about who comes to mind when you read the above factors. They are probably a Conscious Consumer, and this just might be the Holiday Gift Guide for them (and you)!
Gifts For the Homebody
Many of us have switched to working from and staying home, therefore it is more important than ever to consider what we’re using to keep our homes clean. What we clean with, and what our water quality is like is a huge thing to consider! If you, or someone you know, seems like the type that cares about these things, they would probably be over the moon for anything from Branch Basics and Berkey Water Filters.
A starter kit from Branch Basics is a GREAT way to help someone toss toxins from their household cleaning products, and switch to something natural that actually works! Save 10% using this link (save 20% now through 11/30) on any starter kit, or use this link to save $10 off any order. The wool dryer balls are a personal favorite of mine to replace dryer sheets, and they’re super budget friendly!

When we finally got our Royal Berkey Water Filter system, I couldn’t believe the change in taste of the city water that was coming into our home. I was totally blown away by the effectiveness at filtering out the horrible chlorine smell, fluoride, and even RED FOOD DYE Y’ALL. You read that right, there is a test they suggest trying to be sure your filters are doing their job correctly, and it includes confirming that red food dye doesn’t make it into your cup. Amazing!
There are tons of gift-able options from shower heads to cups to gift cards!

Gifts For the Kitchen Connoisseurs
If you know me, you know I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. I also use a lot of tools, and it matters greatly to me what sources and tools I use when providing meals for my family and loved ones. From practicality to sustainability to nourishing, what goes in my kitchen matters to me. Here are a few of my favorite things that make my kitchen wholesome, holistic, and nourishing that could easily double as great gifts for yourself and the kitchen connoisseurs in your life!

Adapt-what? If you have been following me on Instagram for any amount of time, it’s very likely you’ve heard me talk about adapotegenic herbs. As much as I love coffee (hint: A LOT), my body is not a huge fan. Many people have a response to coffee that is less than ideal (anxiety symptoms, heart-palpitations, crashing, tanking adrenals, just to name a few). Coffee alternatives I’ve tried in the past have been a huge disappointment. However, that was until I discovered RASA. Learn more about RASA on my blog post here.
Give the gift of a sample of each type of herbal coffee they offer for the coffee lover in your life. Their energy levels and adrenals will be sure to thank you later! Normally $36/pack you can save HUGE this Black Friday-Cyber Monday and get/gift the sample pack of the entire RASA family for ONLY $9!

Gifts For the Wellness Minded
Elder Berry DIY kits are all the rage right now, and the use of elder berry syrup is on the rise. Proven to cut cold and flu with 48 hours, as well as cut down symptoms by 50%, this powerful herb makes a great gift of wellness for loved ones. Options found in the store is at best organic, but often filled with harmful sugars that reduce it’s effectiveness. Plus, we have no guarantee how long it has sat on the shelf. Fresh is important with herbs.
This special, all-organic formula I curated has become a staple in my home, as well as many loved ones of mine. You can read more about what makes my kits unique by visiting my shop here.
